Description

Sandy Land Family Child Care is dedicated to helping raise happy, polite, curious, self-assured children. I believe all children are special and full of promise. Childhood is a short and precious time. It is a time to learn about Love, Trust and opening our minds to the joy of exploration. When it is impossible for a parent to stay home, there is no better place to experience these things than in a quality Family Child care setting. I utilize a combonation teaching style of Reggio Emillia / emergent learning and a Waldorf / Rudolf Steiner education style.

The most important thing we can teach children is that they are valued. Unless children have a basic sense of self-worth, it's very unrealistic to expect them to embrace the challenges of learning and problem solving.

A key component to teaching in the emergent style is to listen to the children's questions and think of ways for them to seek out and discover their own answers. Once again, it all comes back to self-worth, the foundation of learning. There's nothing like mastery over a problem, challenge or difficult question. When we know what we're doing, we feel capable, competent, in control and empowered.

Bringing Waldorf Education style into the mix means that I incorporate music, dance, and theater, writing, literature, legends and myths. These are not simply subjects to be read about, taught and tested. They are experienced. Through these experiences, we cultivate a lifelong love of learning as well as the intellectual, emotional, physical and spiritual capacities to be individuals certain of their paths and to be of service to the world. I strive to transform education into an art that educates the whole child—the heart and the hands, inspire the senses and the mind.

I believe it is very important to co parent children. I encourage family members to visit and to look at the "LOOK WHAT WE DID" wall, read our newsletters "Sandy Land Press", and visit our "Parents Place" on the web site to see pictures illustrating the children's adventures. These are all excellent ways to keep my families informed as to the value of the kind of learning environment I am providing. I find when a child's family is informed and pleased with what is happening, they often contribute suggestions of their own to further enrich their child's education.
Together we build the future.
